A Design Revolution: Again & Again

Reasons to shop (and love) Again & Again:
1. Your idea of fun is rearranging the living room furniture.

2. The budget for furnishing your first apartment is smaller than expected.

3. You would rather shop at The Glass Slipper than at The Gap, which means your furniture shouldn’t be massed produced (or from Pottery Barn) either.

4. You’ve driven by the hot pink bungalow (east of 75 at Knox-Henderson) millions of times and always mean to check it out.

5. Because refurbished and vintage doesn’t have to mean old and run down. Instead, you’ll make it mean trendy and sexy.

6. Your friends will be jealous of your one-of-a-kind finds and dub you the Queen of Apartment Decor.

More Than Vintage: Jarma

It didn’t get much better than playing dress up in your grandma’s gowns and stomping around in your mom’s (ten-sizes too big) stilettos. But now we’re grown up (sigh) and sometimes all I want is an attention-getting piece. Something that shows the time in your grandma’s closet was worth it.

So if you’re like me, and love a vintage find check out Holly Olmstead’s vintage jewelry and accessories line Jarma.

From vintage designer pieces spotted at flea markets to stylish scarves, Olmstead has an eye for spotting the trendiest of items.
